Great HTML Book For Computer or WebTV

This book is written with the computer in mind but I found it great for making webpages with my WebTV. Some applications I couldn't use because the directions were for Windows but it still gave enough information to learn HTML and make my Web site with it's many web pages. I enjoyed learning to make anchors the most, they are links that jump to another area of the webpage or website. The directions are great and easy to understand, you will be happy with this one.

Complements Scott Meyers' two Addison-Wesley volumes

Lakos's 1995 book needs updating to recognize recent additions to C++, e.g. bool, namespace. However, the perceptive reader will have no trouble extending the principles to the newer features.
If there's a drawback it's that Lakos focuses on how to cope with mammoth programs more than on how to keep programs from becoming mammoth in the first place.
